The Fool:

ancient archetype

of truth-telling 

across cultures

nonsensical, outrageous

in words, behavior

and dress

obscuring

a deeply perceptive

nature

and sage-like

wisdom  

speaking

the unspeakable

truths

his gift to humanity

without shame 

without guilt,

embarrassment

not in his

vocabulary

  1. Bravo! Sometimes I wonder if the fool is really the insightful genius and his entertained audiences the fools for not noticing the obvious realities. We laugh at today’s comedians as they brazenly critique the social ills and political chicanery rampant in society. Thank you for sharing. Enjoy the day.
